There is an abundance of style on the streets of Milan. Not all of it can possibly be captured as their consent must be given to take their picture. Here are a few women who consented to be captured on a Monday afternoon, wearing outfits of a casual chic vibe on their merry way about town.

In primavera it is a combination of winter warm handle and spring colours. The sun is out in Milan, so the wide brims are out. Not as catchy but there you go. Coats still a necessity but worn with grace.

There is definitely a unique way of styling in Milan. As the temperatures continue to flout double digits and the blue skies persist – Easter, design week, and summer are soon to follow. As will a change in mentality and an evolution of street style.

Primavera

Primavera (or spring) officially starts today, March 1st is the meteological start of spring. It is a wonderful time of year when trees bloom, looking less baron and generally less dead. Grass gets its gloss back and there is the promise of wonder, new beginnings and obviously sun. However, from London to Milano it is officially still blooming cold!

Spring is the beginning of a new season, and I am talking conventional calendars. In the world of fashion, Spring/Summer begins in January as if you didn’t know. February is the time for fashion week, where designers showcase their next Autumn / Winter collections. That’s where I am, at the end of Milan Fashion Week AW16/17. It is a magical time of year.

Summer doesn’t officially start until June 1st which is a long time to wait. In the meantime what do we wear? I have compiled a few OOTD pics to give my interpretation of Primavera – I’m calling it My Spring in Milan, Italy; for inspiration when the weather is exceptionally non-compliant.

My favorite, in my limited wardrobe whilst in Italy going #casualchic. Navy Wool Jumper Autograph (M&S); Dark Skinny Jeans, GAP; Peach slingback Point Shoes, Autograph (M&S); Zara Leopard Blanket scarf draped on the side. The Cons on the side can fit in the DKNY bag I take everywhere, just in case.
